I am surprised so many say they have issues with the app or the web site.

On my iPhone 5, I have never had one issue. All of my plans show up and the site loads very quickly.

Can I ask what kind of computer and phone are people using when they have issues?

My sister will be using a galaxy 3 when she travels. I wonder if the issues are all with android phones.

I have a droid and I haven't had any issues.

So really it's like the test I was part of September, except then it was MK only, and RFID cards instead of wristbands.

I, too, haven't had any problems with My Disney Experience website. Made some reservations over the phone and some online, then changed a few online, added to my itinerary. It's all there and looking good.

See and I think the opposite, I would rather be able to book TSM 2 months in advance. Even being local I know pretty much when I'm going to visit the parks so being able to grab those FP for the big rides in advance would be great.

My family has been to the parks numerous times over the past year, we are not hard core so we never make Rope Drop which means that usually by the time we get there the good rides have long waits and FP return times are very late or even gone. This new plan would work GREAT for people like us!

I have a Galaxy S3...never had an issue with it. Everything has always showed up. No problems for me on my phone or computer.

I have an iPad and an Android phone. Since some of the kinks were worked out after the initial roll out I have only had minor issues, and that was on the Apple verison. I was adding a ton of NOTES to MY PLANS and the App would frequently freeze and have to be shut down. However, all the info would be saved and there when I logged back in. (This was about a week ago). Annoying, but not enough to make me declare this version is useless.

HTH!

So...will Disney set up stations to charge our smart phones? I can't imagine my iPhone battery lasting a whole day if I must check MDE for FP+ and using it as I usually would. I would normally say "oh well" but if I needed it to store and lookup FP+ and it died, I would be frustrated. I don't go to Disney as often as most of you so maybe there already is a place to charge phones but I'd be surprised if it was free. Just a thought...but hey, first world problems, right?

What about us people from the UK with smart phones because If we turn on phones on when we are over in the US we incur massive chargers

So this would mean we would not be able to use these features

Will someone please tell me all about this FP+ stuff. I do understand you will get 3 FP+ a day but how do you sign up for this? Do I need to tell my TA what rides I want each day? Help me understand

There is WiFi in all Disney parks and resorts now, so you'd never have to turn the cell service on on your smartphone to be able to access the new app.

There will also be kiosks in the parks which you can use to amend your pre-booked FP+ times if you don't want to use your phone too much

I asked about this at the MK this morning and they are testing, just not here today. The CM wasn't sure how people are being selected. He said that the other day it was at various resorts.
